+1 on SB's comments Noodles. Shoulders look rite, but the chest is too small on all of those.

-Chest p2p doubled should a few inches bigger than your actual chest circumference. For me and my posture, it's 2 inches. Noodles, whatever that Zegna mila I sold you was -- measure it, that's your gold standard
-Waist shouldn't buckle on the jacket when you first put it on. It can actually be a little bit big, just have a tailor take it in
-Length should hit around your knuckles when you're handing are at a natural position
Those are the basics of fit.
Oh, and also don't get anything with too high/low of a button stance. A lot of the Suit Supplys have way high button stances
Chest bowing = too tight or too loose a chest
It seems difficult and restricting but man is a well fitting jacket a wonder to behold. Combos are fun too, but this is the really good stuff.
I am...struggling with obesity. I am 10 FREAKING pounds over my normal weight of 170lbs. All my suits in the closet are 38R and they DID fit me at one point. I have told my wife to stop feeding me but bless her heart she won't stop. I habe also gained some upper body muscles in the chest, shoulders, and arms. This is causing more fit issues.

Dudals, you've been "battling" weight ever since you've arrived on SF. I don't think I've ever seen a jacket fit from you that wouldn't have benefited from being let out a bit or sizing up (and then being let in). It isn't even necessarily about your weight. It's also the size of your ribcage. You aren't a 42...that may just be the marital feeding....but you would have long sense been better served with a 40 and getting a tailor to nip the waist.
